Proof they are not a cult??
Obviously they have a different definition of a cult....did they start out their proof with their definition?
Too late for the damage control old son, there is enough evidence in the Watchtower's own literature to prove they are a judgmental hate group.
Religious nationalism (BTG) is growing not dying, and soon the WTS will be under investigation here in USA. The WTS will reap what they have sown for years.
They are using Christians from the UN and elsewhere, in their defense in Russia and call us apostates when we fellowship with them .....hypocrites ...
99.9 we have an internal alert system to protect victims of child abuse. other congregations are informed in lighning-speed about potential offenders, no other group has it, victims are asked if they not encouraged the offenders to avoid further stress.
These guys should have been correspondents for Ripleys!
2. An average of over 800 people become Jehovah's witnesses daily.
AND.......McDonalds serves billions..
Which Makes McDonalds..
THE ONLY TRUE RELIGION..
They have Drive-Thru..
It is only those people who are under the influence of a cult who don't realize that they are being duped.
Have a look at the other side of the coin friend...
Why is it that The Watchtower has never got anything right in one hundred and thirty seven years?
OP- Are you aware of other religions that have similar beliefs as Jehovah Witnesses regarding war, holidays, not being part of this world, etc? All you need to do is a bit of research.
CHRISTADELPHIANS- Christadelphians take no part in politics, voting, or military service.
ASSEMBLY OF YHWHHOSHUA-
A member in no way should participate into the affairs and practices of the world. …Thus a servant of YHWH can not vote or contribute to or accept any benefits from the institutes of the United States …nor should he be allowed to be a government official, to be a juror, or to serve in the Armed Forces. …Christmas …and any other heathen holiday are not celebrated in this assembly because of the inherent revelry contained in such celebration, as in the pagan names and sources that they represent.
ASSEMBLIES OF YAHWEH
Affiliated assemblies are located in 50 countries around the world. The missionary thrust, both foreign and domestic, is concentrated through the Sacred name Broadcast, heard over 24 stations across the United States (as of 1995) and in 75 foreign countries. …Affiliated members are found in 115 countries.
Actually this list represents the real reasons why many JWs remain stuck in the cult, the things which go with proudly wearing the JW badge.
It is this collection of ideas which circulate inside the congs, the things JWs tell each other, convincing them to remain.
Whilst we know not to attack delusional beliefs head on, I do think we should bear these apparent benefits in mind when dealing with the JW mindset...even working out why each of them are false hopes.
Just my thoughts on the matter since I hear my offspring thinking this way.
The list only goes to show that whoever compiled it does not know the normal definition of a cult.......
6We don't salute the flag or say national Anthems because we pledge our allegiance only to God.
Sure they don't salute it but they sure don't have problem with placing it on the KH in Chile to get out of paying a fine. The hypocrisy is just mind blowing.
